Most of the time (maybe 65%--I'm guessing here),
the items I come home with after garage-saling or thrift-store-shopping
are not as utilitarian as this.
But I've been wanting one of these for a long time.
I found it this week for 75 cents.
It's already served me well.
My husband removed the rest of the white plastic coating
that had begun chipping off on one of the handles,
sanded down the board a bit,
and applied some mineral oil to it before I used it.
"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be
useful or believe to be beautiful." (William Morris)
What's the most utilitarian item YOU'VE purchased at a garage sale or thrift store lately?
